The Global Competence Certificate

Projects and programmes New Zealand (nationwide)

Posted: 19 November 2020
Notice reference #: 1HAEbQ

The NZ Global Competence Certificate is a 4–6 week course consisting of 18 online modules and 4 'in-person' dialogue sessions facilitated via Zoom. Participants will be equipped with lifelong global 'power skills': collaboration, critical thinking, problem solving, open-mindedness, cross-cultural communication, and flexibility. These skills will enable our rangatahi to thrive in multicultural and global environments, work effectively on diverse teams and being active community members.

AFS New Zealand is proud to offer scholarships for domestic students aged 14 –18 to take part in 2021. The Global Competence Certificate is a blended learning programme that develops tangible global skills essential to live, work, and make a real social impact around the world. 

Let's get young people from all across Aotearoa involved in this amazing initiative!
